When visiting family in Taunton we opted to visit the Canton restaurant. We had assumed with a name like the Canton they would serve a full Chinese menu. Just how wrong could we be. The restaurant had changed name and the majority of food served is Indian. We decided to find a restaurant which lived up to its name, as... More

This place has changed hands and I tried it this past Sunday. The food was ready when I arrived and was still hot when I arrived back home. I had the beef with ginger and spring onions on egg fried rice. The dish was perfectly cooked and tasted of just the right amount of ginger. The Won Ton Soup was... More

Takeaway menu is very expensive....curries do not come with rice or chips included like other places and curry alone more expensive than everywhere else. Chicken very rubbery. The restaurant however is better but still expensive.

We stopped on impulse for New Years Eve. Very good food. Only one criticism, the food did not stay hot enough without hot plates on the table!

Very pleasant welcome and we were served by a very helpful and friendly waitress called Jordan. Food was excellent, cooked well and very tasty. Only negative is there isn't much atmosphere however food and staff make up for it.

Very warm friendly service on an unappealing wet post bank holiday evening. The food was very good with duck very enjoyable and well presented. The main courses were good portions and represented good value. We visited with our children who enjoyed the food.

But today the restaurant was nearly full, the food was fresh and well cooked, and the waiting staff helpful and efficient. All in all our family enjoyed an excellent... More

I visited this restaurant with my son having just returned from a trip to Hong Kong. Without doubt the food was as good as anything I have eaten in 'westernised' Chinese restaurants - good quality ingredients, well cooked and served by very friendly and attentive staff. A good wine list offers reasonable wines at a fair price but they do... More
